  • Gender-Free Role Term Usage 2

    October 19th, 2017
    contra, gender, roles
    Update 2018-02-23: The version of this information that I'm keeping up to date is trycontra.com/roles.

    More dances have switched to "Larks / Ravens", so here's an updated version of the chart I made before:

    ~312 series, ~130 weekends Gents / Ladies Various (series, weekends)
    8 series, 5 weekends Larks / Ravens Berkeley, BIDA, Circle Left, Form the Ocean, Hayward, JP, LCFD Dance Camp (both coasts) Sebastapol, South Bay, Village Contra, YDW
    1 series Bands / Barearms Rainbow Contra Dance of Western Mass, Queer Contra Chicago
    1 series Jets / Rubies Portland ME
    1 series Leads / Follows Brooklyn Contra

    The biggest change is that [EDIT: nearly] all the "Bands / Bares" dances have switched to "Larks / Ravens", but there are also a few dances (BIDA, Sebastapol, YDW) that have swiched from "Gents / Ladies".

    Update 2017-10-20: I've edited the chart above after learning that Rainbow Contra Dance of Western Mass is still using "Bands / Barearms".

    Light Switch

    When I got my loft bed it was just so annoying every morning to have to get out of bed, climb down the ladder, turn the light on, and climb back up, just so I could see stuff. I decided to make a string for my light switch because I really wanted to be abl…
